Akaroa Beach

Akaroa, New Zealand
Administrado por Pulse Energy

Akaroa is a region very proud of its French heritage, and also of the magnificent beach waiting to be discovered here. Akaroa beach is quiet, secluded, and sheltered, with a mixture of sand and small rocks abutting the water. Akaroa Harbour is also home to pods of rare Hector’s dolphins, which lucky swimmers may be able to spy further out from shore. The beach is adjacent to Jubilee Park, and there are two large car parks just above the sand line.

SOURCE INFORMATION

Canterbury Regional Council monitors water quality at popular swimming spots throughout the Canterbury region during summer. Water samples are collected weekly from around 100 recreational swimming sites from mid-November to February/March. LAWA assigns each site a grade, which is based on the last three years of monitoring data from the site.

Coastal waters are tested for Enterococci levels.

The council issues an amber alert if a single sample level of Enterococci are greater than 280 units /100ml.

Pulse Energy updates Swim Guide for the latest water quality information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season. Data in Swim Guide is sourced from LAWA’s “Can I Swim Here” program.
